Harm reduction for non–injectors

Harm reduction for non–injectors

Drugs can be taken by inhaling the vapour of a heated substance (chasing), spraying a dissolved substance into the nose, snorting a drug in powder form, or smoking. Each route of administration has specific associated risks.

What works?

  • Interventions including, for example, the distribution of clean crack kits to prevent people sharing crack pipes, personal vapourisers for cannabis users, information, education and communication material and outreach activities may help these users, however more research is needed

What's unclear?

  • No interventions in this category

What doesn't work?

  • We are not aware of interventions for non-injectors drug users that cause harm
